Who are we and why are you here?

My Sheet Music Transcriptions was created early 2011 under the name of OLC Barcelona Music. It all began on Youtube, when we detected the need of some musicians to get some songs written down to sheet music. Those musicians, coming from all over the world, watched videos and listened to songs that they wanted to play, but couldn’t find the sheet music or simply didn’t have a trained ear or the time to transcribe the music themselves. If you’re reading this, that is probably you right now. Here’s where we thought that it would be generous to offer our ears and our time to create the sheet music that they were desperately looking for. Audio into PDF. Right? Isn’t that cool?

Oriol, our Founder, happily started the whole thing after a few years transcribing and arranging music on his own. Then more people were needed to do this and that, to help here and there, to transcribe that piano jazz solo or that string quartet, so we slowly became a big musicians family.

We have been writing arrangements by request for 5 years, with more than 400 works written so far – and counting! 

We are all musicians and we always know how you musicians feel when you contact us. You might be concerned about the accuracy of the transcription. That is why we manually and carefully transcribe every single note in your song. In our team, we even have some specialists that are better at transcribing certain genres. We love working on what we’re good at. 
You might be worrying about us not making it to a deadline. It’s OK, we understand, musician’s punctuality is NOT one of the most popular strengths of the profession. However, we have the fastest delivery time online, as we are a bunch of transcribers working together and music can be written from one day to another if you really need to make it to that wedding. 
You also worry about the money. Oh, how can you not. Musicians enjoy the privilege of having one of the most irregular and seasonal salaries around, so we understand that too. That’s why we have the lowest rates on the internet. You’ll see; look around, take your time. We try to make it as affordable as possible so you don’t have to spend an unreasonable ton of money on this, whether if you are a broken music student or a wealthy landowner that wants to spend his money on a new car.

Our philosophy is to tackle every customer’s request with good energy, humor and empathy. Ask us anything. Our goal is to satisfy and exceed your expectations so you can run and tell your friends about it while you play our arrangement. 

Oriol López Calle

Founder, manager, web developer. Music arranger and transcriber.
Long story short: The guy who came up with this!

Born in Terrassa, Barcelona in 1993, Oriol studied the Professional Degree and a Postgrade on Piano in the Conservatory of Terrassa. He is a classically trained musician that jumped into the jazz and modern music industry at the age of 17. His professors were Rosa M. Turu in the piano field and Guim Garcia-Balasch in the jazz field. He was taught music theory and harmony by Pere Casas. He has also attended numerous master classes and courses with professors like Miquel Farré, Roger Mas and Marco Mezquida.

Oriol is a multi-genre-eager-to-learn pianist that has taken part in all kinds of bands, including pop, gospel, ska and reggae – although he is now specializing on jazz and soul. He also runs Duo Tocatta, a project that mixes classical and popular music with humor and theatre. Oriol is strongly interested in improvisation and spontaneity as a trigger to the music’s energy flow and communication with the audience.

He started arranging for his music school when he was around 15, so he became interested in spreading his arrangements among any other musicians that could need them. As Oriol also studied an Aerospace Engineering Undergraduate, his entrepreneurship and programming skills prompted the creation of OLC Barcelona music after being rejected by some publishing companies because of his young age. The tiny music catalogue website developed into a sheet music services site after massive amounts of customers were asking for some covers, transcriptions and arrangements by request. Since then, Oriol works 24/7 on My Sheet Music Transcriptions and has been recruiting friends and musicians all over the world to help him out with the project. He’s taken part in various startup and entrepreneurship courses and conferences, and he’s constantly trying to spread the word of his work.

Oriol believes in the diffusion of music, books, and culture as a solution for most of the society problems out there. Creating music out of the blue where there wasn’t music before is a good way to start, and that the task that My Sheet Music Transcriptions works hard to accomplish.
